Here in the studio, when we design new projects and crafts for the different holidays throughout the year, we love to create things that can be used again and again. Not only can you create a gift that is a sweet sentiment in the moment, but it can also remind that person of your lovely thoughts year-round. One example of this is our 3D paper heart bookmarks, which we’re showing you how to make today.

If you love making gifts for Valentine’s Day, we have a lot of other ideas for you, too! Some of our other favorite Valentine’s Day gifts include this conversation heart tote bag (perfect for carrying books or all the Valentines goodies you get) and our heart shrink film jewelry.

ISBN Thinking About You!

This simple-to-make bookmark mixes cardstock glitter paper, pretty frosted paper, and a DIY floss tassel to create an elegant understated look. No words needed to express your sentiments! These 3D paper heart bookmarks make great gifts for book lovers of all ages—especially when you add them to books you know your friends or family members will love to read.

If you love this holiday, check out our other Valentine’s Day projects on the site. We’ve got décor, cards, plants, and more for you to DIY. Also, if you have any suggestions for what we should make next, just comment below. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
